Re: New on Paratrooper--help!
By the way all,
I gave Wildcat an enthusiastic welcome because I told him I would if he got verified. I try to be a man of my word.
I am still confused by some of his claims and the evasiveness.
Wildcat. This post is getting pretty fucking long and I would really like to hear you come clean (in 200 words or less, not 200 more pages) and answer some of our questions.
I warn you, I have a lot of trust in and respect for my brothers here, especially some of those calling bullshit on your claims, but not much in you yet.
What do you say Wildcat? Are you going to be a man and answer a few simple questions -- or are you going to snake off into the woodline on your belly because your mouth got a little bigger than the ass you have to back it up and you are afraid to admit it?
Shit, if you are trying to bullshit us, at least you could admit to us, if for no other reason than to preserve some modicum of self-respect and some semblance of manhood. In other words everyone fucks-up, but at least a self-respecting man will admit that he has fucked up and take what is coming to him.
If you have been trying to bullshit us (which I suspect), well, obviously you are not welcome here as far as I am concerned, and I hope you take it as a lesson learned and keep your shit within reality in the future. Damn shame when a man gets turned away by Brothers because he can't tell the truth.
Light engineers must be proficient in marksmanship, demolitions, light infantry skills, and field-expedient engineering. Because of the austere conditions in which they operate, light engineers must have knowledge of all weapons in their unit, an intimate understanding of the weapons systems of the forces they support, and a working knowledge of the enemies' weapons. The close combat skills of light engineers must be unequaled. They must hold total confidence in their abilities to apply these skills and tools.
